By the Numbers: Top Eleven Mets All-Stars
July 13th, 2010 by slangon

I can’t believe that the Mid-Summer Classic is upon us already. It seems crazy to me to think that it’s mid-way through the season (actually, it’s 88 games into the season, which is 54.32% though the season). I always hear people complain about the All-Star game, saying how it’s not fun to watch and it’s […]

Building My Case
May 25th, 2010 by slangon

Exhibit A: So far, a 1/4 of the way through the 2010 Baseball Season, Johan Santana and Mike Pelfrey have unsurprisingly emerged as the top 2 pitchers on the Mets staff. Coincidentally, during a series against the Philadelphia Phillies at Citizens Bank Park on April 30th through May 2nd, the 2 of them threw back-to-back […]

So the Mets finished up a very successful home stand yesterday, completing a 3 game sweep of the Dodgers with a 7-3 victory. They went 9-1 on said home stand, finishing it out with a 7 game winning streak after sweeping both the Braves and the Dodgers. After the off day today, they head into […]

SlangKo Heroes of the Diamond 21-25
April 8th, 2010 by slangon

Well, whatever good feelings were generated with the Mets win on Opening Day have been unceremoniously knocked to the ground and beaten to within a inch of their life. Sigh. Anyway… I’m a little loathe to admit that I’ve sort of lost steam on this set. Not so much that I don’t like it, but […]

One Down, 161 To Go
April 6th, 2010 by slangon

First of all, I know it’s only one game, and even though the Marlins have a lot of talent, they’re not necessarily the pride of the National League. For the Mets to get that first win under their belt was huge though, especially the way that they went about it. Their Ace pitched like an […]

Happy Opening Day
April 5th, 2010 by slangon

So it’s finally here. I guess technically yesterday was the season opener, but really who cares about the defending world champs playing against their bitter rivals at one of the oldest ballparks in the country. SNORE! Right now as I type this, we’re looking at roughly 3 hours until Johan Santana throws the first pitch […]

Another Spring Training TTM
March 18th, 2010 by slangon

2010 SlangKo Heroes of the Diamond Nick Evans Black Border Evans is one of those guys who I had really high hopes for, solely for the fact that in his first game as a Met, he hit three doubles. I guess I can’t really blame him for not panning out as I had hoped. I […]

Happy Beer Drinking Day!
March 17th, 2010 by slangon

Or as my mom calls it, St. Paddy’s Day. In honor of all the boisterous teens who were cutting school in order to go to the NYC St. Patrick’s Day Parade that were on my train this morning, preventing me from reading my newspaper in peace, and the drunken fools who will inevitably be on […]

Spring Training Mets cards. 2010 SlangKo Heroes of the Diamond Ryota Igarashi Black Border Iggy is one of the handful of Mets relievers who are trying to stake a claim for the 8th […]

And the Troll Keeps on Truckin’
March 10th, 2010 by slangon

I’m sure by now everyone who is familiar with this here little bloggerverse has heard the tragic tale of the Collective Troll. Recently, Cards on Cards had received a trade package from the recently de-carded Troll and expressed his guilt upon receiving said package. I too recently received a trade package from the Troll and […]
